His parents knew many Hollywood celebrities, and being surrounded by famous people from an early age, George always wanted to work in the film industry. He attended college and graduated in 1968 with a bachelor’s degree in economics.
Before meeting Vanna, George was already a successful entrepreneur and well-known restaurateur. He owned the popular Santopietro Italian restaurant that he founded in the early 1980s, located in the Mullholand Drive neighborhood of Bel-Air, California. At that time, the restaurant was a place frequented by many celebrities.
He then opened an exclusive Japanese restaurant called Sushi-Ko in the same neighborhood, and ran these two businesses for years before becoming a Hollywood director.
George started his career in the film industry in the early 1990s – his first job was as a dolly grip (operating the camera) during the show’s filming.Beverly Hills 90210”. He was later a dolly grip for popular shows such as “Star Trek”, “The X-Files”, and “Law & Order”, among many others. In 1994 he appeared in the theater production of the popular comedy “Revenge of the Nerds: Nerds in Love” alongside Bernie Casey and Robert Picardo, and the same year in the TV show “The New Mike Hammer”.

In his later years, George became a real estate agent and bought a two-acre block in Beverly Hills with the help of his ex-wife Vanna. In the late 1990s, they built a two-story mansion with a private pool and vineyard. In 2010, George put the mansion up for sale for $50 million, but it sold for less than half the price. Prior to the sale, George rented out the house for between $150,000 and $175,000 a month, according to the listing service.
In 2007, he reportedly sold another luxury villa at 77 Beverly Park Lane, Beverly Hills, California for a price of $50 million; the mansion had nine bedrooms and 15 bathrooms within an area of 30,000 square feet.
